Boudoir Photography

Since 2011

 

Welcome to GoShiggyGo Photography.

I'm Shiggy. It's super nice meeting you. In a photography genre predominantly photographed by women, I guess it could be considered an honor that women from all over the world trust me.

 

Over the years I've attended workshops with THE top boudoir and glamor photographers in the world and have taken workshops with David Mecey, one of the lead photographers for Playboy Magazine. I believe it's important to learn, to grow, to continuously hone your skill and develop your craft.   You, the client and hopefully friend-to-be, gets THE best photographs taken of you. I'm looking forward to meeting you in person, and please don't hesitate to reach out.

It's like the saying, "if you don't ask, the answer is always no." If you don't venture out of your comfort zone and do a boudoir shoot, the "answer is I'll never know."

FAQs:
Is there nudity involved?

That all depends on your level of comfort.  My style: Think Playboy. Classy. Elegant. Timeless.  We usually go for an "implied look," which leaves a LOT to the imagination. If you are looking for something X-rated, then I am not your photographer. My personal goal from every shoot is to create art.  Beautiful wall art.  Magazine worthy art.  The kind of art that you'd be proud to show your mother.  In a world where "less is more," sometimes "more is less."  More elegant. More sexy. More provocative. More imagination inducing. More timeless. More classy. 

What should I wear?

Most client's wear lingerie. Many bring an article of clothing from their significant other, such as a white dress shirt, a tie, or in one case, her husband's firefighter jacket and helmet.  Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, beautiful and sexy.

Where is the photo shoot?

I have photographed boudoir photographs at client's homes and have also converted my studio into a very realistic setting.  One of the most popular options is for a client to book a hotel room.  We do a shoot in the hotel room and the client treats it as a getaway or a mini-vacay. Since you've paid for the hotel room, many clients go out on the town for a fun night out and return to the room later that evening after their "date night."   Please contact me to discuss options. 

Who is your typical client?

It ranges from college students to professors at Universities, from shy introverts and some with no personalties to some extroverts with multiple personalities. From military to firefighter wives, from strippers (this is LA) to doctors where I had to sign exclusive NDAs.  

 

What if I'm not in my 20s and am not an IG model? 

Believe it or not, and contrary to belief, the average age of my boudoir client is not someone in their 20s. The average age is late 40s to mid 50s.  I would love to know why? Is it confidence? Acceptance? Or is it because their kids are getting older and they have time to make themselves a priority again?  Hmmmm, maybe I'll conduct a poll.

Do you do couple's shoots or do male boudoir shoots?
Not at this time.

 

Will there be anyone else there during the shoot?

Rest assured, for your comfort and safety, we'll have a female hair/makeup artist present at all times. If you opt to do your own hair/makeup, that'll be totally fine. Some clients get the hair done at the local Dry Bar and have makeup done by a friend or at a Sephora-like store.
 

Can I bring a friend?
You're more than welcome to, and encourage you to even bring your significant other with you. Bring your friend. Bring your buddy. Let's make it a party!!! A celebration of you. An empowering moment of courage, bravery and a heck yeah to living your one, BEST life! 

Can I do the shoot alone?

You bet. Some of my clients prefer to do the shoot by themselves. They aren't influenced by or distracted by their friend watching over.  

How much is the shoot?
Price starting at just $450. For more information on pricing please click on here or go to the portrait pricing section.
An additional consideration for you is if you choose to book a hotel. 
I've done shoots in economy/budget hotels as well as high end, luxury Beverly Hills hotels. My studio is the most economical option as 
it doesn't involve booking a hotel. Plus there is free parking! 

 

Do you offer discounts if my friend also wants to do a shoot?
Yes. If you have a friend who also wants to do a boudoir shoot on the same day, please let me know. Discounts are offered. 

 

What should I wear before the shoot?
Loose fitting sweatpants and a sweatshirt. Why? Photoshopping out underwear/bra lines is very time consuming.

Who sees the photos?
They are for your eyes only. Unless you would like to share them with your significant other or let your friends see them. These are your photos and are 100% private.  In all the years of shooting, I have encountered ZERO problems.  
My photography brand and reputation means everything.

 

My tan is uneven. What should I do?
Good question. The simple answer is spray tan. Some makeup artists are magical with airbrushing and creating even skin-tones.  

 

I know what I want, but don't know how to explain what I want.
Does that make sense?

I totally get it. Please go to Pinterest, or Google and simply look at photos you like and love.  Take screenshots and then send them to me. This will give me an idea of what you want, so that we are on the same page. 

By the way, which photographers do you like?

That's easy. Herb Ritts (He took Cindy Crawford's nude photos for Playboy Magazine. He also created the iconic photo of all the top 80s models huddled together in their birthday suit, including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Stephanie Seymour and Tatjana Patitz.  Do you remember it?)  I love Annie Leibovitz's work.  (She took Demi Moore's nude pregnancy photo for the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine,  as well as the iconic photo of the nude John Lennon with Yoko Ono dressed in all black for Rolling Stones Magazine. I got to meet Annie Leibovitz at the Women's Conference in Long Beach Convention Center in 2009. Yay!)  And of course I love Peter Lindbergh's work.  He did a series for Vogue Germany entitled "Naked Truth."  11 women. 1 photographer.  Unadorned. Make-up free. Unadulterated. And no retouching and no Photoshop. The results were pure and beautiful.
